LOL Interesting. I heard some blacks say why there isn't a black Peter Parker, and now's a good chance they might see one for the first time in this movie.

Yes, my nerdy Schvartz, a black Peter Parker is good for ze Jews. But remember, it must be boiled slowly, like ze proverbial frog. Ze vhites vould never accept a black man hero, just look at Hancock. But a vhite hero turned black, oh, yes. Mix, mix, destroy yourselves, goyim.

I thought Peter Parker was a white character. Peter Parker isn't some ambiguous figure like Jesus or Santa Clause.

But sure, black Spiderman, why not. I certainly don't give a shit.

Well at least he's not officially black so you've got nothing to worry about. The same treatment happened to Nick Fury in Marvel UA where he was black in that series even though he was originally and officially a white man.

daredevil was a very underrated movie. i think ben afflec played the daredevil the person great but the scenes where he was daredevil were lacking.

michael clark duncan great actor, but again just so disappointed that he was cast as kingpin. must give the man his props they couldnt find a better manute in sin city.

as far as a comic book movie goes sin city hit every charactor on the head with the casting

iron man 2 is what really pised me off when it comes to this. terrance howard was the perfect person for war machine. then they had to cast don chedal for the part. in this case it wasnt about having a black man play a black part. its about the wrong black man to play the part

thats kinda like the whole darth vader thing. here you have this strong lead charactor voiced by james earl jones. great proformance and in the last movie he removed the mask and its a white guy.

to quote directly from chasing amy

Hooper: For years in this industry, whenever an African American character, hero or villain, was introduced - usually by white artists and writers - they got slapped with racist names that singled them out as Negroes. Now, my book, "White-Hating Coon," don't have none of that bullshit. The hero's name is Maleekwa, and he's descended from the black tribe that established the first society on the planet, while all you European motherf*****s were hiding out in caves and s**t, all terrified of the sun. He's a strong role model that a young black reader can look up to. Cause I'm here to tell you, the chickens is coming home to roost, y'all. The black man's no longer gonna play the minstrel in the realm of comics and sci-fi fantasy. We keepin it real, and we gonna get respect by any means necessary.

Holden: Ah, come on, that's a bunch of horse s**t! Lando Calrissian was a black guy. You know, and he got to fly the Millennium Falcon, what's the matter with you?

Hooper: Who said that?

Holden: I did! Lando Calrissian is a strong role-model in the realm of science fiction/fantasy.

Hooper: F*** Lando Calrissian! Uncle-Tom n*****! Some white boy's already gotta bring up the "Holy Trilogy". But those movies is all about how the white man keeps the brotha man down, even in a galaxy far far away.

Hooper: Check this s**t. You got cracker farm boy Luke Skywalker, Nazi poster boy, blond hair, blue eyes. And then you got Darth Vader, the blackest brother in the galaxy, Nubian god!

Banky: What's a "Nubian"?

Hooper: Shut the f*** up!

Hooper: And Jedi's the most insulting installment. Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!

Banky: Well, isn't that true?

Spiderman--can---not--be --Black. But Robbin' Hood can def-nately be Black.See Obama in the starring role,as he robs from the RICH,ie working people,and gives to the PO'(in exchange for their votes.
